We are going to lose if borders are the first line of defense.
WASHINGTON (PNN) - August 13, 2021 - In a leaked recording, Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas can be heard admitting that the situation at the border is “unsustainable” and that “we’re going to lose” if “borders are the first line of defense.”
The audio was reportedly recorded during a visit Mayorkas paid to the border to view the situation on the ground firsthand. According to official Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics, agents encountered 212,672 illegal immigrants at the border in the month of July - a shocking, 13% increase over the number of migrants apprehended in the month of June.
“A couple of days ago I was down in Mexico, and I said look, you know, if, if our borders are the first line of defense, we’re going to lose and this is unsustainable,” Mayorkas said. “We can’t continue like this, our people in the field can’t continue and our system isn’t built for it.”
Mayorkas appears in the recording to be reassuring CBP that things will change, though he is clear that agents must make sure that the situation comes under control.
Mayorkas told the agents that the current border situation cannot continue. He said the federal government’s system was not designed to handle such an influx of migrants as the (Fascist Police States of Amerika) has seen in recent months and he was very well aware that the sector recently came close to breaking.
“It’s our responsibility to make sure that that never happens again,” Mayorkas said. “The extent of the challenge should not be understated, but nor should our ability to meet it.”
The illegitimate Joe Biden regime recently released a plan to handle illegal immigration, but the proposal focused on addressing root causes of migrants from Mexico and Central Amerika, and the solutions proposed were largely financial in nature.
On Thursday, confirming earlier reports of a major surge at the border, the Department of Homeland Security announced that apprehensions at the border are increasing, even though apprehensions typically decrease over the hot summer months.
